Hi, can someone with multiple sclerosis (& also in a wheelchair) have a breast reduction or would this be foolish?

Hi, can someone with multiple sclerosis (& also in a wheelchair) have a breast reduction or would this be foolish?

Yes, but...: Assuming the multiple sclerosis is under optimal control and you have received “clearance” from your neurologist, you may be an excellent candidate for breast reduction surgery; this operation tends to be very patient pleasing. Preoperative communication between your neurologist, surgeon, and anesthesiologist will be helpful. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ridge like area in breast. Biopsy was fibrosis/sclerosis. Does this go away? Lump still there. Could pathologist be wrong? 3 month follow up stable.

Ridge like area in breast. Biopsy was fibrosis/sclerosis. Does this go away? Lump still there. Could pathologist be wrong? 3 month follow up stable.

Pathologist: Pathologists are not infallible. More importantly, pathologist can only examine the tissue that was submitted, if that tissue was not representative of the actual lesion, then the result may not be meaningful. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who did the surgery. ...Read more

I have multiple sclerosis, and I am being treated for breast cancer, my 2nd occurrence. Recent labs show "lymphocytes absolute 0.64". Possible causes?

Treatment: Although I'm not sure which treatment you are receiving, the drop in lymphocytes is almost certainly from this. These cells are particularly susceptible to chemotherapy and their levels are being monitored by your treating physician. ...Read more

Anything new for lichen sclerosis? I have tried steroid creams, other creams and uvb lights. I have it in genital area plus stomach and breasts. Help!

Anything new for lichen sclerosis? I have tried steroid creams, other creams and uvb lights. I have it in genital area plus stomach and breasts. Help!

Well!: Many years ago I used hypnosis for lichen planus (itchy scales all over body). I "suggested" under hypnosis that the scales would fall off. That night when she undressed the scales fell off and she had to get a brush and pan to sweep them up. Skin cells originate from the same cells that are used to create the brain and probably explains why a skin disease responds to such treatment. ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with breast fibrosclerosis adenosis! Is it anything to worry about? Can it be pre cancerous?

I've been diagnosed with breast fibrosclerosis adenosis! Is it anything to worry about? Can it be pre cancerous?

Sclerosing adenosis: This is considered to be proliferative breast disease. What does that mean? It is not cancer. It is not pre-cancerous. However, people with proliferative breast disease have a slightly (yes, just slightly) increased risk for developing breast cancer in their lifetime over the general population. You simply need to continue with routine screening and follow up. ...Read more

My MRI said: bilateral few radial folds, more as regards the number and indentation at left silicon implant breast. What it means? Is that risky?

My MRI said: bilateral few radial folds, more as regards the number and indentation at left silicon implant breast. What it means? Is that risky?

Sounds normal.: Radial fold are normal infolds of a breast implant seen on mri. An indentation may also be normal and is not a term used to describe a rupture. The statement "more as regards the number" does not make any sense at all. ...Read more

I have few scattered calcific foci in bilateral breast. No other focal lesion seen in mammogram of both breasts. Should I get worried?

Concerned: And follow-up.
To be calcified, these have existed for a while. Self and professional exams are important, along with excellent mammograms.
Your gyn and / or breast specialist will follow with you. ...Read more

I get lesions under my breast and arm pits. A Dr. Said it was hygiene but I Shower every am and bathe almost every night. Tried antibacterial soap.

See a dermatologist: This needs to be appropriately diagnosed and treated. Assuming it was inadequate hygiene (and it seems unlikely), that still does not tell you what is causing these lesions. Either go to a different doctor you trust or see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Should I avoid swimming in a public salt water pool when having an active lichen sclerosis flare with an open lesion?

Should I avoid swimming in a public salt water pool when having an active lichen sclerosis flare with an open lesion?

CELLULITIS: Yes, to avoid Cellulitis (a superficial skin infection), that can be caused after an abrasion or rupture of a boil or underlying skin lesion. I also would suggest getting retested for food and environmental allergies by blood and skin testing. Evaluation for RA /LUPUS and IMMUNE SYSTEM is also warranted. ...Read more

Any docs familiar with Tumefactive Multiple Sclerosis? Ever seen a persistently enhancing lesion? 4cm lesion 5yrs enhancement. RR symptoms. 5 OCB.

Any docs familiar with Tumefactive Multiple Sclerosis? Ever seen a persistently enhancing lesion? 4cm lesion 5yrs enhancement. RR symptoms. 5 OCB.

Generic response: "Tumefactive" lesions are not uncommon in MS, and may be associated with even very potent medications. From your description, would presume your diagnosis is correct for R/R MS, but the lesion in question may be a co-morbidity, such as a vascular malformation, a brain
glioma, or even a nidus of infection, such as abscess. Need to see your neurologist and go through careful and thorough testing. ...Read more

On my diagnosis paper it says: osteolytic lesion without sclerosis ring, with clear, irregular margins. Could you tell me what is it in more detail?

On my diagnosis paper it says: osteolytic lesion without sclerosis ring, with clear, irregular margins. Could you tell me what is it in more detail?

Plasmacytoma?: Hard to say without more information, but an osteolytic lesion could be multiple myeloma, or if a single lesion, a plasmacytoma of bone. Most "solid tumor" cancers that go to bones are "blastic" and not "lytic" (like a punched out moth eaten area). Ask the doctor that ordered the test what it means. Additional laboratory (spep/if, flc, upep, b2m) testing and a biopsy of the area may be in future. ...Read more

Does a pericallosal lesion in the brain point towards Multiple Sclerosis? I had an MRI and there is a 7mm oval lesion on the left side...thank you

Does a pericallosal lesion in the brain point towards Multiple Sclerosis? I had an MRI and there is a 7mm oval lesion on the left side...thank you

How to address: One lesion does not confirm the diagnosis, as need scattered lesions over brain and/or spinal cord, with both older and newer areas. But if the clinical picture is consistent with MS and you have one lesion, there is an 80% chance of clinical MS within 14 yrs. Recommend repeating films in about 90 days, and maybe obtaining spinal fluid to pin down the situation.. ...Read more

I have multiple sclerosis and during a routine MRI of my t-spine the MRI happened to pick up a t2 hyperintense lesion on my liver.?

I have multiple sclerosis and during a routine MRI of my t-spine the MRI happened to pick up a t2 hyperintense lesion on my liver.?

MS & liver spot: It is common for tests to pick up things we did not know about, and sometimes this helps us. In this case, the significance of this is not clear. MS does not cause changes like this on the liver. It is likely a liver specialist would think this is benign, but we should leave it to them to decide. ...Read more

I had a breast u/s performed. The report described it as a 12x5x9mm hypoechoic lesion with vascular flow present. Does this sound benign?

I had a breast u/s performed. The report described it as a 12x5x9mm hypoechoic lesion with vascular flow present. Does this sound benign?

Indeterminate Lesion: The findings cannot be characterized as probably benign based on the report. The nodule is in the indeterminate category which means further evaluation (like a biopsy) may well be required. Most such biopsies will turn out negative but it is important to identify the ones that aren't to catch things early. Good luck. ...Read more

Post fire verification in breast biopsy u/s images doesn't look like its right in the lesion... Looks more on the edge but hard to tell bc u/s looks blurry. Dr said very confident it was in the lesion?

Post fire verification in breast biopsy u/s images doesn't look like its right in the lesion... Looks more on the edge but hard to tell bc u/s looks blurry. Dr said very confident it was in the lesion?

Correlate all result: Physicians usually correlate the biopsy results from pathology with the radiologist opinion of the ultrasound/mammogram results and their physical exam of the mass. If any one of the three opinions disagree, then an excisional biopsy may be recommended to be sure what the lesion is. We call it "the triple test". ...Read more
